Warning: The Wrong Approach To Weight Loss Endangers Your Health

Lots of people want to lose weight, but many of them don’t know that weight lose is a highly delicate process that needs to be done right. In fact, most people don’t realize that weight loss can actually be dangerous when done the wrong way.

Rather than improving your health, you could actually be setting yourself up for serious health problems and rapid weight gain in the future. Examples can be seen in the stories being told by past participants of ‘The Biggest Loser’ show, who complain of gaining weight after the show among other problems.

‘Biggest Loser’ Contestants Starved, Took Drugs For Dangerous Weight Loss Program

NBC’s The Biggest Loser has seen controversy in the past — like when trainer Jillian Michaels was caught supplying her team with caffeine supplements to boost their weight loss. But it all seems to be coming to a head lately as more of its former contestants turn to the media to expose even more sinister secrets about the show.

Most recently, they’ve shared stories about how the show perpetrated negative body image, and how they gained most of their weight back shortly after its completion, calling into question the efficacy of the program. But perhaps most frightening are the rumors of how participants were expected to adhere to unhealthy diets and use drugs that stimulate drastic and dangerous weight loss. See full post here...

One of the biggest problems for people that want to lose weight is that they want it to happen as quickly and painlessly as possible. What they don’t realize is weight loss actually takes quite a toll on the body, so overdoing it could actually cause more problems than it solves.

Understandably, most people want to lose weight to look and feel good about themselves. The misconception here is that the faster you can get over the weight loss process, the faster you can look great and get back to your normal life.

This gets even more complicated as a person begins to see the results of their efforts. He or she gains even more motivation to keep going and will likely increase the amount of effort. This is a common problem, even among celebrities:

Rob’s current diet is pretty unsafe and could be putting his body in some serious danger, according to Radar Online. Apparently, he’s losing weight way too fast to be healthy, and because of that, he’s experiencing some scary side effects. See full post here...

Another problem that results from people wanting to lose weight fast is their willingness to try anything that works. Unfortunately, a lot of the products touted as effective in promoting weight loss contain very harmful ingredients. Some of these are associated with serious health problems including heart attacks.

Weight Loss Supplements Found to Contain a Dangerous Drug

More than a dozen body building and weight loss supplements sold in the U.S. have been found to contain a chemical related to ephedrine, an active ingredient in ephedra. That supplement in 2004 became the first and only supplement ever to be banned in the U.S after it was linked to numerous hospitalizations and fatalities, including the death of 23-year-old Baltimore Orioles baseball pitcher Steve Bechler in 2003.

“What we found was shocking,” says Pieter Cohen, M.D., the Harvard researcher who with his colleagues identified the ingredient, called oxilofrine, in 14 products, including HyperDrive 3.0, Shredder, Fastin, and Lean Pills. See full post here...
